A lovely example of the rare Omega WWW 'Dirty Dozen' British Army Watch. The WWW watches are one of the most popular and collectable military watches of all those issued to the British Army. The possible reason for this could be because they were the first designed and custom made for the British Army. WWW stands for Watch, Wrist, Waterproof and was the code used by the British Army to identify is as a piece of equipment. These watches were being manufacture and issued to the British Army in early 1945. There was only around 25,000 Omega WWW watches produced for the British Army during WW2. As such condition and availability of original examples can be difficult to find. 

This example of the Omega WWW British Army strap watch has a stainless steel case with a black nato style strap and black dial. The black dial has arabic markers, second hand sub dial and sword hands. The dial and hands does have some aging although it adds to the uniqueness of the watch. There is also a few marks on the plexi-glass protecting the dial, but they don't obstruct you reading the dial. This Omega WWW British Army watch doesn't have its original box and guarantee. 

Our in-house watchmakers have checked the watch over and it comes with a 12 month Gold Arts guarantee.
